When John Lajoie approached a bank for a loan to start his private investigation business in 1989, he had trouble convincing anyone he could turn the operation into a success. Less than two decades later, Lajoie owns one of the largest investigative agencies in central Massachusetts and is regarded as one of the nation's leading private investigators. Now, in Trials and Tribulations of a Real Life Private Eye, Lajoie tells his story, explaining the decisions and actions that allowed him to turn a struggling one-man operation into a successful agency. From the details of his work on high-profile homicides cases and as a member of elite criminal defense teams to the death threats and personal struggles that come with success in a dangerous business, Lajoie describes the reality of the world of private investigation as only an expert can. "John Lajoie has produced a truly unique book- a candid portrait of the real world of private investigation, written as only someone with years of success in the business could write it. His memoir balances professional advice with compelling stories of the reality of PI work, and is told with humor and insight." Michael Koryta, Edgar-nominated author, Tonight I Said Goodbye "Lajoie pulls no punches, spares no one that which they deserve, shares credit with his colleagues, and brings more than a few surprises to the table. Whether you're in the PI business or not, this is an entertaining and enlightening read." Don C. Johnson, CLI, CII, Editor, PI Magazine, Journal of Professional Investigators
